Opening for The Pains of Being Pure at Heart during their visit in Manila has been a wonderful gigging opportunity. Thanks to Mario De Castro of Gweilo Bar and Joff Cruz of Kindassault. It's our third time to do front act for a popular foreign band and our first time at Hardrock Cafe.
Early at the venue for sound check, we were able to catch the members of TPOBPAH. A quick photo with Kip Berman was good enough for us. Aside from Peggy Wang, Alex Naidus, and Kurt Feldman, there's a fifth member who climbed on stage. Later on we realized he's Connor Hanwick of The Drums sessioning on guitars, giving their live stint a fuller sound.
